Cookie-cutter weddings not really your vibe?

I'm here to tell you there's hope! You should personalize your wedding to fit your needs, values, and dreams. Not all weddings have to look the same. They should be unique and reflect you as a couple! Here are the top 10 Peerspace venues for your intimate wedding in Los Angeles, coming from a wedding photographer!

When I was planning my own wedding, I spent hours and hours and hours looking at what seemed to be like hundreds of Peerspaces and Airbnb's to find the perfect one. It was really overwhelming, so I've compiled a list so you don't have to! Here are 10 spaces I've found that each fit different needs, price points, styles, and locations all around Los Angeles (in no particular order). In general, Peerspace is more affordable than your typical wedding venue (with some as low as $50 an hour!)

And let me tell you, as a wedding photographer myself, shooting weddings at any of these locations would be a DREAM.

Each space has raving reviews and lots of customizable options for your event. Some are indoors, some are both indoor and outdoors. Los Angeles gets pretty nice weather most of the year, making either option accessible.

There are a couple ways you can host your elopement/reception at these venues:

  1. You can elope at a different location of your choosing (like the courthouse or the beach) and then have an intimate dinner with your closest people afterwards! You don't necessarily have to have everyone present when you get married, that's up to you. But this way, you're still able to celebrate with your loved ones.
  2. You can do your wedding ceremony at these locations with your guests. The beauty of these venues is that they're flexible. 5 minute ceremony, 3 hour dinner party? Yes please.

This is where Evan and I held our reception! The host was amazing to work with and the space was perfect for what I was envisioning. We really wanted to spend an evening with our closest friends and family in a relaxed, chill setting. We set up tables and had a nice dinner. It was the perfect location for a summer reception outdoors because it was very shaded and had a nice breeze. It was large enough for everyone without it feeling too crowded. I highly recommend this venue if you're looking for chill vibes in an aesthetic space.
